Notes
"This small 100 page document ... has been issued somewhat apologetically after being nine years in the works. Following unforeseen delays and a change of writers, the editorial committee felt that rather than prolonging the process in order to produce a more polished account, they should make the material available in its present form. The year 1993 will make a century since the foundation of the Church of England Deaconess House, subsequently called the Anglican Women's Training College (AWTC). By that time it is likely that even the legal entity of the AWTC Board will have ceased to exist, as negotiations are under way between AWTC and the United Church of Canada's Covenant College for final legal amalgamation following twenty-one years of cooperation as the Centre for Christian Studies" (p. 56). "Not all graduates became deaconesses. Some were missionaries, who might or might not be deaconesses. Many fell into a category broadly called 'church workers'" (p. 57). "Between 1894 and 1969, graduates of Deaconess House /AWTC were working right across Canada and in every country overseas where there were Canadian personnel. They were to be found at every level: parish church, diocesan and national offices, with aboriginal people in the far north and in Labrador. .... They were literally in not officially committed to poverty, obedience and celibacy. They walked and canoes where there were no roads and repaired their own cars when primitive roads were built, and later travelled in bush planes (p. 58).

Notes
This book "is based on remnants of Margaret Outerbridge's original diaries, letters, her own later reconstruction of events, in-depth interviews with her husband and with friends" (p. 156). "Margaret Kergin, daughter and sister of medical doctors, herself a trained and experienced nurse, married Ralph Outerbridge, a Canadian medical missionary commissioned by the United Church of Canada to serve in West China. It was as the wife of a missionary that Margaret saw herself, her loyalty was to her husband. The young couple went to Szechuan Province in 1938 and returned to Canada in 1950 when the outbreak of the Korean War forced all missionaries to leave" (p. 156). "It is the story of the end of an era for missionary work in China, and is a critique of the missionary work itself. The book provides a useful addition to the growing body of literature on the history of overseas missions. It is told with eloquence, passion and humour" (p. 157).

Notes
A bibliographical essay and review of the place of women and feminism in Christianity in general and the Anglican Church of Canada in particular. "The books that one would like to review for this issue have not yet been written. I refer to books on feminist theology written by Canadian women" (p. 106). "The history of women in the church is almost absent from histories by men, even those written today" (p. 106). "What then, are Canadian women to read while we prepare ourselves to write and publish ? Our basic choice is books from the United States and England, and I have chosen two from each country to look at in this article" (p. 106-107). The four books are: 'God's Fierce Whimsy: Christian Feminism and Theological Education' produced by the Mud Flower Collective (New York: Pilgrim Press, 1985); 'The Journey is Home' by Nelle Morton (Boston: Beacon Press, 1985); 'Feminine in the Church' edited by Monica Furlong (London: SPCK, 1984); and 'Walking on the Water: Women Talk About Spirituality' edited by Jo Garcia and Sara Maitland (London: Virago Press, 1983). "All of these women emphasize experiential learning, call for a new language and images in recognition of fresh insights about God, and work for justice and peace. All experience a new spirituality, a wholeness, based on their own acceptance of feminine reality as valid and empowering" (p. 109).

"Patricia Bays, editor".
Short personal stories by women collected to celebrate "the sixteenth anniversary of the ordination of women to the priesthood in the Anglican Church of Canada [30 November 1976]" -- Intro. p. [5].
"Some years ago, a group of Anglican clergywomen decided to collect the stories of Canadian women clergy as a way of sharing experience and telling the story of how the ordination of women came about in our church. All women ordained at that time, and some lay women, were invited to send in stories, vignettes, reminiscences, and many did. The project has taken a number of years to develop, but this book is the result of that collection. As the book progressed, some further stories were solicited to round out the collection and to represent other aspects of women's ministry in the Anglican Church of Canada". -- Intro.

"This is the story of a courageous woman who could have been swallowed up in the life of her family as so many women have been throughout our history. She had become a well-known and highly respected professional woman when she married and accompanied her husband to Japan in the role of missionary wife. The Powles' was no ordinary family. It was famous among the Christians in Japan and it had its own culture. She could have been lost in it. Instead, while giving herself to her family, she searched out her own particular ministry and, through it, transformed the lives of many of us". -- Foreword.
Contents: Family Tree, Marjorie Agnes Powles -- Foreword dated January 1993 / Jeanne Rowles -- Introduction -- Looking Back -- Family Formations -- A Creative Introvert -- From West to Centre -- The Life Proper -- One the Way to a Life of Our Own -- Transitional Times -- Leaving Home -- Everything Happens Twice -- Index.
